For fifteen years, Arianna Occhipinti has been thoughtfully crafting wines from Sicily’s indigenous grapes. Through inspiration and observation she has conceptualized the execution of three different single vineyard expressions of Frappato — with only 2700 bottles of each wine produced.
PT, Pettineo. A historic contrada that is home to 60 year old vines, planted on marine sediment soil with a thin layer of surface limestone. This fruit driven juice has silky tannins and lively acidity.
FL, Fossa di Lupo. The contrada that has been the focus of Arianna’s work since her winery’s inception. A rainbow of sand shades mixed in with limestone rocks, produces a fruit forward, but austere expression that is balanced with great acidity.
BB, Bombolieri. The smallest layer of sand covers solid limestone of varying colors. Pockets of clay mix in throughout the contrada, resulting in a wine that is floral and straightforward, with Frappato’s persistent acidity.
